      Hello,

      My pre flop play here I think is fine?
      My Cbet is not a good play, I think?
      The guy in the SB is actually pretty tight playing 12/6 over 150 hands.
      I am think he has possibly checked either a set or has A10 as he had no need to protect on the flop as there are no draws (with a set).
      I think he checks hoping I bet again on the turn then shows no fear when the A hits on the river. So I elect to fold wishing I'd never Cbet the flop.
      Any thoughts?

      Thanks,
      Zach

      Hey Zachrina,

      Preflop play is fine.

      I would check flop. Your cbet is not terrible though. The problem is that the hands that fold are usually worse hands, while most better hands are calling.

      Turn check back is fine, especially after the SB calls who may have a strong range. The T is not a good card to barrel.

      The river is awkward since your opponent may have a worse Ax - but given his bet-sizing I think you made a good fold. (Assuming he has AJo, he can't expect to get value from much when he almost pots it, so his bet looks more like a Tx or boat.)
